A giant Japanese cedar “Shihon Sugi”

This old tree, estimated to be 400 years old, is designated as one of the 100 giant trees in Japan and one of the most valuable assets of the town.  The trunk splits into 4 parts, which earned its name “Shihon Sugi .” How it grows to the sky is totally magnificent.
